Mod, so sorry the treats didn't get through. I didn't even think about quarantine for dog biccies!

Here are some pics of my parcel (finally!). I received:

Some reflective strips for night-time walking

2 nice new leads, each embroidered with my pooches names

A treat bag (actually has already been used to carry a soggy tennis ball back from the beach yesterday!)

And some lovely dog treats - here are my mutts enjoying them!

My son threw a toy at Chester just as I was taking the pic!

Thank you so much. I am so pleased with my first swap!

3  My first sewing project! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by crafty_cow on: April 11, 2010 01:52:34 AM

I've just finished my first ever proper sewing project using my machine. I had been putting it off time and time again because I couldn't find the perfect project but then I figured I had to start somewhere.

I used the Ric-rac 1 hour tutorial that I found on another post (http://vintagericrac.blogspot.com/2008/01/1-hour-bag-tutorial.html). It didn't take me an hour - it took me about 3 but I am a total beginner. I dug out some fat quarters, chose a fabric and cut it to size, only to realise of course a handbag has 2 sides!! I didn't have enough to make both so picked a co-ordinating fabric hence the 2 different colours. I also had to do a fair bit of seam ripping when I sewed my handles in the middle of the lining and the outer fabric. Doh!! I guess that's what you get for sewing at 11pm when my 4 month old son is in bed. My sewing isn't neat enough yet to leave the edges of the handles out like the tute.

But anyway... Thought I'd post for some feedback. All is welcome!
